How is Engine Oil Sludge Removal Performed
Engine oil sludge can be prevented with regular oil changes. We recommend that you get an oil change every 5,000km. This timeline should be shortened if you have been driving longer distances or through rough terrain.
Over time engine oil which has not been changed enough can turn into sludge. The saturated oil will find places to build up in the engine and around gaskets. Our team will perform an engine flush and may even clean the individual parts by hand to restore vehicle performance.
Symptoms of Engine Oil Sludge Buildup
Even with proper oil changes, there can be a buildup of sludge depending on how old the car is. The combustion engine may put out a larger amount of contaminates which are picked up by the oil, depending on the vehicles age. Common symptoms that there is an engine oil sludge issue happening within your vehicle:
- Poor Gas Mileage
- Problems Starting
- Problems Accelerating
- Problems Changing Gears
- Loss of Oil Pressure
- Issues with Emissions
